Breva - Génie 03

| 1 Comment
After presenting Génie 01, the world’s first wristwatch with time, altimeter, barometer for forecasting the weather provided by a fully mechanical movement, and Génie 02, combining a mechanical timepiece with a high-performance altimeter, Breva Geneva brings to the market Génie 03, the world’s first-ever wristwatch with a functional speedometer.


Differently from watches that can only calculate the average speed based on the time required to cover a measured mile or kilometer, the new Génie 03 is fitted with a patented "instant speed" scientific measurement mechanism, with a proprietary extrusion mechanism that creates a unique look. When extended to indicate the speed, it stands 6mm out of the watch itself.



Within the Titanium G5 extrusion mechanism, comprised of 27 components, are hemispherical Robinson cups, also in titanium, in the manner of an anemometer. The classic device for measuring wind speed, it has been adapted in Génie 03 to display speeds of 20 to 200 km/hour or 10 to 125 mph.

When worn on the wrist of a cyclist, motorcyclist, speedboat operator or car driver, with wrist exposed to the moving air, Génie 03 will indicate the speed with a red hand, against printed inner speed indexes and an engraved lacquered field for the external speed scale on the speedometer’ bezel.


The speed scale is available in kilometers or miles per hour. No calculations on the part of the user are required as the reading is instantaneous.

Génie 03 is water resistant to 30 meters at all times, with speedometer open or closed, and dust resistant even with the speedometer active.

The titanium case has a diameter of 45.20 mm with a thickness of 17.50 mm when the anemometer is closed or 23.50 mm when it is open. The speedometer activation pusher is positioned at 2 o'clock while the crown to adjust time is at 4 o'clock.


Of course, Génie 03 performs the regular watch function of telling the time, with hours, minutes and seconds, as well as indication of power reserve. The proprietary mechanical automatic movement developed exclusively by Breva beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 60 hours. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the micro rotor is engraved with the Breva compass rose.



A natural rubber strap with titanium G5 pin buckle complete the Breva Génie 03 whose price is Swiss Francs 48,800 before taxes. breva-watch.com
